My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon, I will be very pleased to work with you today and will try my best to answer your question to your satisfaction.
Please answer the following, roughly how many raisins and how long ago did this happen?
not sure - he opened a container on a kitchen top and most were lying around the kitchen top.
2 hours plus
The problem you face is that raisins are in fact a significant toxin to dogs but the lowest documented toxic raisin dose in the dog I can find is 0.1 oz per kg of the dogs body weight.Say your dog weighs 20 kg so you would only be worried if he ate 2 oz or more of raisins and there are on average around 25 raisins per ounce so I would not be too worried about him eating less than fifty. Do you think he could have eaten more than fifty?
he weighs 23 kg
Even better ...
hard to say how many he ate but there were a lot left on top and not on floor
